I'll have to investigate that option. I just have this bad feeling
that its not possible to do both. Since all education is free in
Denmark, the government imposes a lot of restrictions to make sure
that the tax-payer's money goes to the right places. I have been
here long enough such that my way of thinking has been
"manipulated" - I hadn't even considered the option of doing both.
Thanks!! If I can do both, then that'll really ease things for my
game plan. 8-)
